Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Arthur Hindle (born July 21, 1948) is a Canadian actor and director.
Early life and education
Hindle was born in Halifax, to a Navy family. For 12 years, he alternated living with his divorced parents in addition to living in foster homes. He grew up in Bowmanville, and later at the Beaches area of Toronto, attending Riverdale Collegiate and Malvern Collegiate.
Hindle has made guest appearances in a long list of television programs in North America, and has also appeared in several movies, dating from 1971.
His first major role was in a biker movie, The Proud Rider, spawned by the popularity of Easy Rider. Hindle worked with a real motorcycle gang, Satan's Choice of Oshawa. It was during the making of this film that he almost changed his professional name to Jeremy Kane; as producers thought that Hindle should have a more showbiz-sounding name.[clarification needed]
In 1971, he was cast as Billy Duke in the film Face-Off. This film led to offers from Hollywood which he resisted until work dried up and Hindle, who had four children by this time, finally moved to Los Angeles in 1974.
He had a supporting role in the Canadian horror film Black Christmas in 1974. He had a pivotal supporting role in the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and appeared in the 1981 teen sex comedy film Porky's.
From the early 1990s, Art has also worked as a director. He starred in, and directed, the award-winning series Paradise Falls showing on cable stations in the USA and on the Showcase channel in Canada.
Hindle has won a Gemini award.
